"I suffered a back injury as a result of caring for a family member with advanced cancer. I could not afford to be incapacitated and felt awful to show visible signs of pain and discomfort when my loved one was in such a dire situation. As a result, I was suffering from severe physical pain but also trying to cope with significant mental stress.
From the moment I met Philippa at Acorn Health, I knew that I was in the right hands. Her wonderfully calm and caring demeanor was complemented by a clearly bright mind and detailed understanding of how the back works. She expertly diagnosed the problem and I felt like she could feel the pain for herself. I immediately felt much better as she not only understood the physiological problem but also the psychological contribution. I expected a very long and slow recovery but it was truly impressive how quickly Philippa got to the root of the pain and after 5 sessions I was almost completely recovered and able to take an 11 hour plane ride without any difficulty. It was such a relief to know I was in the hands of a truly caring, knowledgeable and highly skilled medical professional.
I am immensely grateful that my research led me to Acorn Health- the results speak for themselves."

"I've found seeing a chiropractor very beneficial, and over a short length of time I have seen excellent results. After feeling headachey and having a stiff neck most days, I am now headache-free and my neck moves much more freely!"

"I was in a lot of pain before I first saw Philippa, I couldn't move my neck or lift my baby without pain and was worried about exercising in case it made things worse. After my first appointment I felt so reassured and much more confident, and have found that I am able to do more and more as time goes on!"

"Philippa, I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me through my injury. A silly but painful injury to by elbow while exercising was causing me pain and stopping me from doing a full range of exercises. After suffering for over 5 weeks, I finally booked an appointment to see you! Just 3 sessions later and I am healed!!! The pain has stopped; I have full movement and can do my full range of exercises again. Amazing!
Your service has been fantastic; you have been compassionate, extremely knowledgeable and great value for money. I have no doubt I would still be in pain, had I not come to see you! If I ever injure myself again, I will not wait so long before booking an appointment! Thank you for all your help and I will definitely recommended you to anyone I meet in need of your services!"

"I first visited a chiropractor on the recommendation of my GP having experienced a variety of critical issues with my spine over the preceding decades. As a normally fit and very active individual recurring injury began to have a significant affect on my professional and domestic life. I have been retired due to having Crohn’s disease but I also had a number of complications which made life very difficult indeed and it was during the worst of this phase that my GP recommended I see a chiropractor.
My chiropractor Philippa has provided me with the highest level of confidential care from the outset. Philippa had fully acquainted herself with my case prior to our first meeting and this helped to establish a lasting bond of trust and confidence in her treatments. Due to my medical history, Philippa continues to explore and research her field in her efforts to find new solutions to the unique and and complicated symptoms we may exhibit, which I know is time consuming yet her willingness to give of her own time so freely is a testament to her commitment to patient care.
A particular feature of chiropractic treatment is that the whole person is considered. Treatments do not continue endlessly and changes and improvements in your health are always acknowledged and embraced. In short, as a patient, your needs are individually addressed and you do not pay for any unnecessary care. As soon as you are “on your feet” your chiropractor will not expect to see you again unless you have a recurrence of injury. Additionally your chiropractor will provide you with small exercise regimes to enable you to apply immediate relief from any onset of symptoms from your injury/illness. These are excellent interventions that are tailored to your needs and keep you on a healthy track.
My relationship with my chiropractor is one of absolute trust. If any issue arises then I know that I can contact or attend my clinic without fear of delay. My chiropractor Philippa knows me, knows how my body works and takes a huge interest in me as her patient. I couldn’t be better supported by any other medical practice anywhere."

- "I had suffered with lower back pain for as long as I can remember. Having tried many different treatments to no avail, I was recommended Philippa at Acorn Health by a friend. After only 2 visits the pain was drastically reduced and I was almost pain free. I give that credit to Philippa thorough examination and treatment with chiropractic care as well as with acupuncture. I highly recommend both her and the clinic."Mr T, Emsworth
"I sit at a desk most days for work, and find that I am generally achey and sore at the end of the day. I wanted to find a way to help keep myself pain-free, rather than just getting help when things hurt. The advice and exercises I've received from Acorn Health have really kept me going."
